Annette's 7th Grade {2012~2013}

Here is a line up for my beautiful, 7th grade Annette. I can't believe she is a 7th grader. Time is going way to fast. I'm having so much fun watching her blossom into a young lady. I am so blessed to be her mom and teacher.

Her main program will be Heart of Dakota~Resurrection to Reformation.

Here are the history books that Annette reads on her own.
  • Peril and Peace
  • Famous Men of the Middle Ages
  • Mystery of History III
  • Gabriel and the Hour Book
  • Monks and Mystics
  • The Story of the Middle Ages
The books below are read aloud books but I'm sure Annette will read most of them on her own. I'm really going to try to read aloud to her at least 2 or 3 days a week.
  • Forbidden Gates
  • Mystery of the Silver Coins
  • Illustrated Book of Knights
  • Morning Star of the Reformation
  • Ink on His Fingers
  • Leonardo DaVince
  • Mr. Pipes and Psalms and Hymns of the Reformation
  • Good Queen Bess
  • Sir Walter Raleigh
  • The Legend of Squanto Audio
  • A Piece of the Mountain
  • The Tinker’s Daughter
For geography she will use Map Trek and World History Atlas.
 Bible Study
 Shakespeare Study
 Science. I must have been tired when taking this picture.
 Girl's Bible Study
 I had planned for Annette to use Lightning Literature but have since changed my mind. I thought since we are using Heart of Dakota for almost everything else we might as well use their literature program as well. I read Small Steps and loved that Annette will read a book about a young lady just her age who gets Polio. The young lady realized how prescious life is and learns what really matters in life. When it comes time for Annette to read the book we can have some great discussions and learn from the characters. This is why I aboslutely LOVE teaching my children at home.
 Language Arts. Again, I'm so grateful to teach my daughter at home. I love that while studying the English language she will read about our Lord and Saviour.

Annette wants to study two languages this year. Spanish and continue with her Latin Studies.

For math she will use Math-U-See Zeta.

At her request she will use Editor in Chief and Mind Benders once a week.
